A knifeman robbed a man in broad daylight as he was on his way to a bank in Luton town centre yesterday (October 30).
The incident happened at about 2.40pm when the 35-year-old victim was walking in George Street West after parking close to the Galaxy Centre.
He was approached by a man who had got out of the passenger seat of a vehicle parked nearby.
The offender threatened the victim with a knife and took a large amount of cash.
The knifeman is described as white, with a large build, 6ft tall, wearing a dark hooded top with the hood up and a balaclava.
The offender then got back in to the passenger seat of a dark hatchback car – possibly a Peugeot – and his waiting accomplice drove away from the scene.
Det Sgt Emma James, investigating, said: “This robbery happened in broad daylight and with lots of people in the area who may have information that could help us identify the car and those responsible for this crime.”
